Home Brew Mart, Where It All Began

In our 25th year, we can't help but look back at our early days. Travel back in time with us to relive the beginnings of Ballast Point at Home Brew Mart, through the lens of some of its earliest employees, Colby Chandler, Daren Rudy, and Larry Monasakanisn. Dubbed the "Woodstock" of brewing by Larry, Home Brew Mart holds a special place not only in our hearts, but the brewing industry in general. Listen in for some OG stories, early day brews, and the evolution of Home Brew Mart after the launch of Ballast Point 25 years ago.
